The number one resolution in households across America is to lose weight and get healthier. It is the same resolution I make every year, I won’t lie. And then mid- January hits, the kids want pizza for dinner, I am tired and don’t feel like cooking and, just like that, my resolution goes right out the window. But this year, I made my decision to live a more balanced lifestyle before the holidays even happened. I am proud to say that I have stuck with it and feel better than ever. But I still have those days where I just don’t feel like putting in the effort. That is why I am so thrilled that Nestle makes a wide variety of foods that are easy to make and that help me stick to my back on track commitment to myself!
My coffee in the morning is a great place to start every day putting things in my body that are better than an unhealthier alternative. But Sugar Free French Vanilla Coffee-Mate is more versatile than a cup of coffee. Check out my Valentine Pancakes with French Vanilla Cream Syrup. Yep, the cream is made with Sugar Free Coffee-Mate! Another favorite recipe with my Sugar Free French Vanilla creamer is French Vanilla Hot Cocoa. Just add 1 to 2 tablespoons of Coffee-Mate to your piping hot cup of Nestle Hot Cocoa, top it with Peppermint Marshmallows and sit back while the delicious, rich flavor blankets your taste buds in happiness. It will be hard to share, I won’t lie.
Another fantastic way to start your day is with a better choice of breakfast! This is where the expanded line of Lean Cuisine comes in. They have these amazing LEAN CUISINE® Morning Collection™ Turkey Sausage English Muffins that will make you actually want to sit down and enjoy your breakfast!
I have to say, I am not big on breakfast. I have to force myself. Having the standard eggs can get really old. So this warm and delicious egg muffin is perfect when I need the motivation to make myself jump start my metabolism with a healthier breakfast! I can heat it up and take it on the go, too. Which is fantastic for a mom who is always rushing out of the house!
With this filling breakfast, I find that I really don’t need anything else until lunch time. With my new routine – as in, making myself eat every few hours – I find that by lunchtime now, I am hungry. This is new for me since I usually never ate anything until 3 in the afternoon! The fact that I am hungry means that my metabolism is working like it should!
I don’t want to do so well at breakfast and then blow it at lunch, however, but I do think I should be able to enjoy some creamy favorites if I want to. Lean Cuisine’s Macaroni and Cheese is surprisingly delicious! A creamy alternative to the recipe I make that comes with a cholesterol check, it is a good sized portion and so easy to heat and eat! It easily satisfies that craving for something hearty at lunch time.
Not to be outdone, however, the Lean Cuisine Wrap Additions make carrying lunch in your hand just – well – yummy!
Wrap Additions are a clever way to get your protein, vegetables and cravings all in one easy wrap. Grab your favorite low carb tortilla – or don’t for those of us who don’t care for them – and fill it with juicy chicken and crisp vegetables. I purchased the Creamy Balsamic Chicken and the sauce alone makes this lunch time feast a fabulous choice!
If you are anything like me, despite exercise and putting better things in your body, you still struggle with snack time. I usually grab cheese or a hard boiled egg which is great, but hardly tasty and satisfying. So as I was strolling the aisles at Walmart checking out the vast selection of Lean Cuisine options, my eyes rested on the LEAN CUISINE® Stuffed Pretzels. The Three Cheese & Spinach Stuffed Pretzels were calling my name. I mean, come on.
I heated these up in my microwave and watched them spin. Pretzel. Cheese. Spinach. Happy taste buds all around. These have a wonderful rich flavor that you would not expect. They are not just bread with some filling. They are creamy filling with the sharp taste of pretzel. So so good!
By dinner you may be thinking that you are almost home with the balanced lifestyle of eating well and getting some movement in your day. You may be tempted to splurge, as I am. Luckily, Lean Cuisine has you covered with a wide variety of delicious meals that will make you feel like you are splurging!
The juicy breaded chicken with the hint of sesame in the LEAN CUISINE® Sesame Chicken will make you hover over your plate and not want to share. You might even be caught licking your plate when you are done but I will never admit to it in public. I love the contrast of the chicken and the creamy noodles. And it is just enough to end my day without me having that “Oh I am sooo full!’ feeling that can make me feel bad later in the evening.
You did it, I did too but we will celebrate together! We made great choices all day long and stayed on track to a balanced lifestyle with delicious foods that are a better alternative that some others.
We deserve dessert! Not just any dessert though. We deserve a rich, chocolate caramel piece of candy that makes us just swoon with delight. Actually, we deserve three pieces of it. Three wonderful pieces of Skinny Cow Devine Candy. Three pieces are only 140 calories and they are so popular in this house that I had to hide them in the butter door. I’m not kidding.
After a long day of eating well, making great decisions about taking the stairs instead of the elevator, parking in the back of the lot and taking the time to call a friend, we deserve this.
Living a balanced lifestyle is easier if you already have the tools you need in your house. So head to Walmart and stock up now! If you don’t like any of your Lean Cuisine products, you can tell Nestle and get your money back guarantee! Just check the back of the boxes for the details!
How are you living a more balanced lifestyle this year? I want to hear!
